The Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department and the Bureau of Criminal investigations was back on the scene outside the Cudell Recreation Center, where 12-year-old Tamir Rice was shot and killed by a Cleveland Police Officer back in November.

Investigators recreated the scene outside the rec center as it was on the day of the shooting, placing a police car right where the vehicle that Cleveland Police Officer Timothy Loehmann was driving was parked. Loehmann is said to have shot Tamir within two seconds of arriving on the scene.

For over an hour, a camera that could rotate 360 degrees snapped images that will hopefully give investigators more information.

Dave Jones says he is a community activist who wanted to stop by to see what police were doing.

"I want to wait and see what the investigation brings. It's kind of 50/50, the way I look at it. It's sad that he got killed, but people have to put themselves in those positions, when a person has a gun whether it's fake or real. You don't know that when you are faced with a situation like that," said Jones.

Tamir's death was ruled a homicide.

Charges could be filed depending on what investigators here are able to uncover.

"It's just a sad situation that a 12-year-old is gone, but people need to think about the choices that they make," added Jones.

Tamir Rice's family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the police officers that were involved.
